How do i enter income without a 1099

There will be options inside the business income section to enter general income not on forms such as cash and checks.  Follow the instructions below to get to this section.

You can claim your self-employed income without a 1099-MISC
  • Log into your account and click Take Me To My Return (you must click this before searching if you are not already in your account)
  • Type “Schedule C" in the search box, top right of your screen, then click the magnifying glass
  • Click the "jump to schedule c" ink in the search results.
  • Follow the onscreen instructions - you may need to answer some business profile questions first if you haven't set up a business already
  • You will arrive at the Your Business page where you will see the various income and expenses categories.

To enter business income not on a 1099-MISC, follow the above instructions, then:
•    On the Your Business page, click Start or Update next to Business Income
•    On the Business Income page, click Start or Update next to General Income
•    Enter income not designated on a 1099-MISC on the next page, "Tell us about additional income"
